This is the picture I submitted to this week’s Thursday Challenge .. It’s actually a screen capture of the .pps “Power Point Slideshow” link indicated below. I think it is breathtaking.
The Millau Viaduct
Paris – Barcelona
Under Construction is the highest bridge in the world. This bridge will be part of the A75 to link Paris with Barcelona.
This suspension bridge has a total length of 2.5 km and crossed the Tarn River. It is 343 meters high, a world record. The road, with two lanes on each side, will cross the river at 270 meters above ground. At the highest point, the viaduct is even higher than the Eiffel Tower. Conceived by Norman Foster, this suspension bridge is supported by seven pylons, instead of two that are common for this type of construction.
It was expected to be opened January 1, 2005 (construction began in 2001)
This picture was taken around April 2004.
